AND HARDLY A SURPRISE:
In an extended word and style analysis over at the respectable American Thinker, author Jack Cashill explores the likelihood that William Ayers ghost-wrote some or all of Barack Obama's Dreams From My Father.
Why is this plausible? Because a man with a record of writing almost nothing at all, and none of it of note -- no articles in the Harvard Law Review of which he was editor, not a single publication during his years as a lawyer and lecturer in Constitutional Law -- was able to produce a polished literary memoir popped from the head of Zeus.
It was a memoir that nevertheless garnered little attention or sales at its 1995 debut, which makes it just a nanoparticle peculiar that, in his own 1997 book, Ayers refers to the obscure Illinois State Senator as a "writer." Wherefore? Hm-m-m.
Cashill's case is by no means conclusive, but is based on the kind of textual analysis to which many a more prestigious writer's works (say, Shakespeare) are routinely subjected.
Cashill fails to mention what, to me, is the most powerful argument against Obama's sole authorship: to the best of my knowledge, Dreams From My Father does not contain a single paragraph which reads
U-u-u-u-h..... e-r-r-r-r-r......eu-u-u-uh.......Look. Let's be clear.....u-u-u-u-m....... Wait, no, no, no.......U-u-u-h-h-h.......
I rest my case.
